    Is this true?

    I was told the other day that in order for a baseball coach to be allowed to talk to you, you must have your name cleared from the KHSAA. Is this true?

    do you mean the NCAA clearinghouse? The coaches can still talk to you, but the clearinghouse declares your eligibility academically.

    So the actual registering and $30.00 fee aren't really neccesary?

    Hopethis helps

    BBF13- In order to be eligible to play for a NCAA school you must complete certain academic standards, the NCAA Clearinghouse exists to verify you have met those standards. A student athlelete wishing to play NCAA sports at any level must be registered with the clearinghouse. The summer before your senior year is plenty early enough to register with the clearinghouse since they won't certify you eligible until you finish high school.
    I believe there is recruiting rule that restricts some coaches from talking with a student athelete until July 1 after their junior year.

    Hope this helps, good luck, take care of the books first and work your tail off year round if you have the dream to play at the next level... the farmer

    Some points of clarification...

    1) NCAA Clearinghouse registration is required ONLY for those wanting to play at the DI or DII level as a freshman. For DIII, JuCo or NAIA, it is not necessary to register. So if you have DI/DII ability...register.

    2) It is recommended you register at the end of the junior year, and it makes sense to do so then if not earlier. It can sometimes take several months to clear, and you can not take an official visit to a DI/DII school without being registered.

    3) The July 1 of the junior year rule just changed. NCAA coaches can call once during the month of March of the junior year in high school. They can email and respond to email anytime. They can accept a phone call from a prospective recruit anytime. They can send an athletic questionnaire in the mail to a HS student-athlete anytime. They can send a personal letter with information about their program effective September 1 of the junior year.

    Make sure you make a copy of the check that you send them too. They lost mine and tried to say that I didn't pay them the registration fee. I know stuff happens and probably won't again. But is better to be safe than sorry.
